Manchester City vs Burnley: Match Preview and Prediction
Manchester City vs Burnley: Manchester City has won nine of their last ten games in all competitions. Manchester City has scored five or more goals in all but one of its six home games against Burnley. Burnley has lost three and drawn one in the last four games in all competitions.
In the fourth round of the FA Cup, Manchester City defeated Tottenham 1-0 on the road to record their seventh straight victory. Despite their unwavering dominance on the field, the Citizens have been unable to break the impasse in North London. However, a late victory from Nathan Ake gave them hope.
Man City has now won nine and drawn its last ten games in all competitions. They appear to have rediscovered their form from the previous campaign, and when Kevin de Bruyne and Erling Haaland recover from their individual ailments, their stock will only increase.
De Bruyne came on from the bench to score a goal and provide an assist to shift the tide of the match against Newcastle in the previous round. This Wednesday, when Manchester City hosts Burnley at Etihad Stadium, might he make his debut?
In this game, hosts are huge favorites. Burnley, second from last in the Premier League, has lost three times and drawn once in their last four games. With five points in the safe zone, the Clarets have little hope of catching the defending champions.
